A Record-Breaking Hope Through Caring Gala

We broke the record at our Hope Through Caring Gala by raising over $900,000 to support our Chicagoland ALS community and advance scientific research.

We are so grateful to Ed Rapp, recipient of the Harvey and Bonny Gaffen Advancements in ALS Award, and Matt Creen, recipient of the Hope Through Caring Award, and their friends and family, for bringing us all together for a special evening.

And a very special thank you to the 22 people living with ALS who joined us.

You can view and download photos from the evening at our Les Turner ALS Foundation Flickr page. Read Northwestern Medicine’s wrap-up about the one-of-a-kind evening>>

 


Remembering Our Loved Ones Lost

Join our Support Services Team on April 25 for a Celebration of Life service.

This special service honors those we have lost to ALS and includes readings and refreshments.

You can further participate in the Celebration of Life by including your loved one’s name in the program book. And for memorial gifts of $175 or more, we would be honored to place your loved one’s name on our annual Remembrance Plaque. RSVP for the Celebration of Life>>

 


Raising Awareness in Our Communities

“Raising awareness about ALS throughout our community is one of the most important things we can do! Being a Tag Days Captain is a fun and rewarding experience,” shares Cara Tighe, Sauganash/Edgebrook Tag Days Captain.

With ALS Awareness Month coming up in May, we’re looking for captains like Cara to host Tag Days Drives in your community.

Join hundreds of volunteers and ALS Awareness Advocates as we spread the message of hope and help and raise funds to support our Les Turner ALS family!

We provide the yellow vests, ALS Awareness cards and collection cans, you bring the volunteers, energy and passion! Support our Les Turner ALS family this coming ALS Awareness Month>>
